“Excellent food, excellent value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

First time back to this new version of Le Bistro and we were not disappointed. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the mussels carbonara and escargots were amazing. Service was very good, the atmosphere nice, not too crowded, not too loud. My only potentially negative comment would be that the live entertainment (which was amazing), was a little loud, making it difficult to have a conversation at the table and we were not seated overly close to the staging area. We will definitely go back. Highly recommend for couples and friends, could be a challenge for children, as I did not see any fare on the menu that would appeal to most young kids.

Thank you for your response ..We do have live entertainment and sometimes if they are a little loud just ask us to turn down the volume and we would be happy to accommodate you..Yes we do cater to kids/families too and we have a great kids menu..we usually only give it to kids when they come in:) Thanks again for joining us at Le Bistro Liz

“Great food, service, value!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stumbled upon this place looking for another.... how fortunate for us! It was our last night in Halifax and it was a great restaurant for that. The ambience was very nice... seemed like mostly locals dining there. It was a Sunday night and they offered a free salad, soup or appie with every entree ordered. They had specials for other nights. We had a wonderful thai coconut curry tomato soup followed by our entrees which were both excellent. Our server, Nancy I think, was great. She was so friendly and provided awesome service. This place was not listed anywhere that we had seen for tourists but we would definitely recommend it!

“One of the best restaurants in Halifax!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Excellent! Not too expensive, but great food. So happy that La Bistro is back!

I don't think that I have ever ordered anything on the menu that I didn't enjoy. And - save room for dessert because The lemon parfait pie is amazing!

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

My companion and I ate here twice in recent weeks. The first rime, I had the digby scallop pasta and the second time I had the seafood crepe. Both were excellent. The scallops were the best that I have had in a very long time. The place also has a nice atmosphere and very good service -- attentive but not pushy.
On our second visit we had the strawberry-lemon cheescake and it was devine!
Also, the food prices are not expensive and some evenings they have live entertainment.

“Friendly service, very good food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our family of 4 ate lunch here. The croque monsieur and the pommes frites appetizer were especially good. We were there on a hot day, and the lack of AC did make it a bit uncomfortable.
